Human Bowling Is Coming to Sydney, And It's As Ridiculous As It Sounds

Just a night of drinks, pizza and flinging yourself down the lanes.

Human Bowling Is Coming to Sydney, And It's As Ridiculous As It Sounds

Fancy flinging yourself down a bowling lane? Ever even pondered the concept before now? Whatever your answer to the first question, we're betting your response to the second query was a resounding "no". As it should be, but someone, somewhere dreamed up human bowling and now it's coming to Sydney — because we all love turning something fun into something painful, we guess?

Strike King Street Wharf is the place to be on March 15 if you're keen on sliding along the hard floors you normally throw equally hard balls down. After putting the notion into action in Melbourne in 2015, the bowling alley chain is bringing it to The Promenade, with free pizza, free vodka Red Bulls, free bruises (we're predicting) and the chance to win $5000.

If you're keen to take part, you'll have to sign up for the chance to win one of ten spots, so don't go hurtling yourself down the nearest flat surface you can find as practice just yet. When human bowling rolled into Melbourne, participants suited up in padded yellow jumpsuits, oiled themselves up, then slid down lanes coated in plastic and doused in more oil. In other words: it's really more like an indoor slip 'n' slide in a bowling alley than really rolling down towards the pins, but it still sounds ridiculous.

Strike's Human Bowling Night takes place on March 15 at Strike King Street Wharf. For more information, head to the venue website.
